In a recent exclusive podcast conversations with Variety, titled “Playback”, director Matt Reeves spoke on spoke on working with Warner Bros. and heir excitement on his approach with The Batman.
“Let’s put it this way. I’ve never worked with them, but my experience with them so far has been really good. As I describe what I want to do, they seem really excited. So its the beginning of a journey… I’ve never worked with any studio other than Fox, so its going to be an exploration for me. I’m excited to say that thus far they seem really excited about it and I suppose if we should ever come to an impasse then we’d have to resolve it one way or another. I’m very hopeful and positive about it.”
Reeves also went on to talk about his take on Batman and how he reminds him of his War for the Planet of the Apes character Caesar and he also goes on to confirm once again the Noir story telling he imagines for The Batman:
“What I see in Batman that I find so interesting is that, in a way, he reminds me of Caesar, in that he is a character with a really troubled past who is grappling within himself to try to do the right thing in a really imperfect world, in a corrupt world. That provides an opportunity, again, if you want to take that point-of-view storytelling — and I can imagine the story as being like a noir. The originals from the golden age were detective stories. I think if you can marry that with the personal, there’s a chance to do something very exciting.”
